Shakira posted this photo on her Twitter page a few days ago – she got a haircut! A real one too, this isn’t just some wig she threw on and claimed was her new hair. Shakira has always worn her hair long, right? For as long as I can remember, she’s worn it past her shoulders, usually half-way down her back. So what does this new haircut mean? I think it makes her look older – it’s kind of a choppy mom-style haircut. I don’t hate it, and I’m glad she didn’t give herself big, thick bangs, although there is some layering in the front that could pass for bangs. I did something similar to my hair more than a decade ago – I’ve almost always worn it long, but for some reason, I was in a “short hair phase” and I did it choppy and above the shoulders. It was fun for a week, but then I missed my long hair.
I had another thought about Shakira and her dramatic hair change (that apparently took six hours in the hair salon, according to reports): that girls chop off their hair after a breakup. So I wondered if Shakira was still solid with her boy, Gerard Pique. It turns out that Shakira went straight to Gerard’s Barcelona house right after the hair cut. So… no breakup. Maybe Gerard was the one who wanted a girlfriend with shorter hair?
Also – Fox News had a really interesting story about Shakira’s accent. Ever since she got with Gerard (a Spaniard), Shakira’s Columbian accent has been fading and she’s acquired a Spanish accent. Is this the Spanish equivalent of Madonna speaking with an English accent?
